I have never been much of a jewelry person. Most of the time I would forget to wear anything except a watch. Because without a watch, I am nekkid. But the jewelry that I used to wear was gold. Gold watch. Gold earrings. Gold necklace. Gold band for my wedding ring. When I remembered to put these things on.
And then one day, it all changed. I won a prize. When I was a Creative Memories consultant…I sold a bazillion dollars worth of supplies…and earned this Brighton necklace.
Isn’t it pretty? But what was I supposed to do? I don’t have a watch to match that. Or earrings. Not a thing to match. So…I went shopping.
My first buy was some simple silver hoops. No big deal. But then, I needed a watch. It would look strange to have this pretty silver necklace, silver hoops, and then a gold watch. So…I thought maybe I’d go and check out the Brighton jewelry to see if there was a piece that might go with my new necklace. And this is what I got:

Someone children feel compelled to drag the lenses across the cement floor of the playground pavillion. Just some. Not all. Maybe it's just the ones that live at my house. Please ignore the crumbs on my tablecloth. And the bursting at the seams wallet. If only that was filled with cash instead of receipts. I need to remember to destroy that evidence.
And then…I branched out into purses:
I’ve become like a magpie with this stuff. It’s shiny. And it makes me happy. However, my husband is still trying to understand how one free necklace can cost this much.
